Few people probably remember just how good Derrick Rose is. Ever since going down in the 2012 NBA playoffs, the league has not only missed his relentless drives and acrobatic finishes at the rim, but also his lack of media presence. After sitting out the whole 2012-13 season, Rose continues to work on his game, strength and conditioning during the summer, and according to Chicago Bulls head coach Tom Thibodeau, he former MVP looks great.

It’s been over a year since Rose got injured, and he will now get a couple more months to make sure he is ready to go for training camp and is able to avoid injury once he gets back on the court.

As painful as it might have been for Bulls fans to see Rose sidelined for the whole season, the excitement his return will bring should be sensational. Most players would probably have risked further injury and returned earlier than Rose, but considering his long-term health, sitting out was probably the right call.
